    so, here's a question. i set my screensaver to show my itunes artwork and set all the "options" sliders all the way to the left. then the screensaver/desktop window crashed and now whenever i go back to it, it crashes before i can do anything. any suggestions?

    Delete the preferences file in Home/Library/Preferences.

    It's either com.apple.System Preferences or com.apple.Desktop or com.apple.Screensaver. I can't be bothered to find out which of those exist :) One of them does.

    Make sure System Preferences is closed when you do that.

    that sounds scary. will it just reset my preference or what?

    I been loving my macbook since I got it, but really enjoying using it for school.

    With wi-fi turned off, and screen at half power I get about 7 hours of battery life, which is awesome. And Schoolhouse is really useful.

    Everything will revert to the defaults for System Preferences, so you'll have to set them up again, but deleting preferences files is a good way of fixing things that crash on startup. You may have to do it quite regularly. If you delete a program's prefs in there, it will populate a new file with the defaults next time you start it. System Preferences is just a program like any other, it just twiddles certain knobs in Mac OS X. It won't break anything, although it seems important.

    I think theres something wrong with my iTunes.


    It's been loosing album artwork recently, along with not reconizing my iPod. Also sometimes theres problems with all my podcast feeds, even though I am connected to the internet.


    anyone have any ideas?
